Tottenham may fine Real Madrid target Gareth Bale after he failed to show up to training for a second day, manager Andre Villas-Boas has said.

It appears a deal with Madrid is essentially done but Spurs want to sign a replacement before it is officially completed. This is the cause of Bale's frustration, but his behaviour has become unprofessional. The cause of the delay was the Willian / Chelsea saga, but the club are now close to completing a deal for Roma's Erik Lamela and at that point Bale should move for around £85million. It's a shame for all at Tottenham that it has come to this, but it would better for everyone if the transfer was wrapped up as quickly as possible.

Liverpool's attack was too much for Bournemouth to handle as they won 4-0 at the Vitality Stadium on Sunday.

The Reds needed just 20 minutes to open the scoring through Philippe Coutinho. The Brazilian, who hit the post earlier with a free kick, capped off a stellar solo run by evading a challenge and slotting the ball past Asmir Begovic. Dejan Lovren scored the second six minutes later with a diving header, before Mohamed Salah made it 3-0 just on 44 minutes. The in-form Egyptian scored his 11th goal in 11 matches with a brilliant individual effort, becoming the first Premier League player to have scored 20 in all competitions this season. Roberto Firmino provided the fourth goal with a header as the victory extends Liverpool's unbeaten streak to 12 matches in all competitions. Meanwhile, Bournemouth are now winless in six games.

Manchester United held on in the end to take all three points with a 2-1 win over West Brom at The Hawthorns.

United started the game well and rushed into an early 2-0 lead. First, Lukaku got his second goal in as many games by leaping to direct a cross from the left by Marcus Rashford beyond the reach of Ben Foster. United extended their lead soon after with Jesse Lingard's shot deflected off Ahmed Hegazi into the Baggies' net. Gareth Barry pulled one back in the second half as United became complacent and failed press their possession advantage into more goals. United could even have blown their lead as West Brom pushed them for an equaliser and only for De Gea's ability they would have conceded in a late goalmouth scramble. United cut City's lead at the top to 11 points, West Brom stay stuck in the relegation zone in 19th.

The David Moyes revolution continues at West Ham as they won 3-0 at the Bet365 Stadium on Saturday.

The match started an hour late due to a power outage at the stadium. It was the visitors who provided all the power once the match started with goals from Mark Noble, Marko Arnautovic, and Diafra Sakho. The Hammers have climbed up to 15th pending Sunday and Monday's results.

Once again, there was no stopping league-leading Manchester City in a dominant 4-1 win against Tottenham.

Manchester City extended its lead to 14 points atop the Premier League table and its league win streak to 16, but got a star performance from the least expected source. With David Silva missing out due to personal reasons, Ilkay Gundogan started in place of the Spanish maestro, recording a goal and assist. His headed goal in the 14th minute go things going, and then the German international set up Kevin De Bruyne for the second in the 70th minute as De Bruyne slammed one past Hugo Lloris from a tight angle. Then it was Raheem Sterling's chance to get on the board after a hat-trick's worth of missed opportunities, scoring a double with a goal in the 80th and 90th minutes before Christian Eriksen's consolation goal ruined the clean sheet.

Brighton and Hove Albion tried their best, but were the latest to fall prey to the resolute Burnley defense, as the two sides played to a 0-0 final.

Charlie Taylor got his first start at left back and Phil Bardsley kept his place over a fit Matt Lowton as Burnley once again played their brand of football with success. Brighton were the only side threatening to score as the first half wore on and a big moment came in the 35th minute, when James Tarkowski fouled Glenn Murray in the box. Lucky for the Clarets, Murray skied his spot kick. The best chance for Burnley going forward came in the 74th minute when Chris Wood attempted a chip on the keeper but it took a fine save to keep it out. Fantasy investment in Sean Dyche's defense continues to deliver.

Watford's struggles have only continued following a 4-1 thrashing at the hands of Huddersfield Town for its fourth loss in the last five.

The Vicarage Road faithful were not in high spirits from the start after giving up the opening goal in the sixth minute. Then, two defensive gaffes led to two more goals starting in the 23rd minute as Aaron Mooy found himself completely unmarked at the back post while Laurent Depoitre took advantage of a Jose Holebas slip in the 50th minute. In between, Troy Deeney was sent off with a straight red card for a cynical tackle from behind on Steve Quaner that will see him miss the next three matches. The only bright spot for the Hornets was a 68th-minute goal from Abdoulaye Doucouré, his sixth of the season.

Mesut Ozil scored in the 23rd minute for the only goal of the match as Arsenal beat Newcastle at the Emirates.

It was another frustrating performance for the Gunners as they dominated but couldn't kill off the match. They will be satisfied with a much needed three points but will need to finish attacks better if they hope to end the season back in the Champions League.

Wing-back Marcos Alonso's goal deep into first-half stoppage time was just enough for Chelsea to overcome Southampton 1-0 at Stamford Bridge.

It could have been a lot more comfortable for the defending champions had they been more clinical, however the goal from a long-range free-kick was all they had to show from a first half where they dominated. Fabregas and Pedro both went close in the second half whilst Hazard had the ball in the net but saw his effort disallowed for an offside in the build-up. Southampton now have not won in five attempts. Ahead of the game both managers made surprise omissions from their starting line-ups with Morata (who had been passed fit) on the bench whilst Hazard led the line flanked by Willian and Pedro whilst Van Dijk sat for the Saints.

Brighton and Hove Albion are seeking their first win in some time but a missed penalty by Glenn Murray made the difference as the Seagulls had to settle for a 0-0 draw with Burnley.

Brighton managed to end a three game losing streak but they will feel like they wasted a chance to get three points today, as they were the side most in control throughout the contest. Chances came consistently in the first half. Murray got a header on target but it was saved and Anthony Knockaert managed to ping one off the post. The critical moment came 35 minutes in though when Murray managed to draw a penalty after being fouled in the box. To his chagrin, his power shot down the middle skied over the bar. Burnley are tough enough to crack once over the course of 90 minutes and the failure to convert the spot kick would haunt Brighton as they could only bend the Claret defense from then on, without breaking it.

Aleksandar Mitrović will not be a part of the squad when Newcastle take on Arsenal at the Emirates.

Speaking ahead of the game, manager Rafa Benitez confirmed the hot-headed striker has a "little problem" with his back which will keep him out of the clash. Mitrovic has been little more than a bit part player this term – just 89 Premier League minutes – while he is yet to start a game. The Serbian looks surplus to requirements and may leave during the January window if Newcastle can bring in reinforcements – Danny Ings is one option having been linked with a loan move following his recovery from injury. Dwight Gayle is expected to lead the United attack on Saturday with Joselu providing back-up from the bench. Paul Dummett will be included in the squad for the first time since the opening weekend and Isaac Hayden could return to the side in place of Jonjo Shelvey who begins a two-match ban. Jesus Gamez is also missing after picking up an unspecified injury in training.
